Thoughts for design, non profits, etc.

Things I am thinking about today...

  • I have amazing friends. Several years ago, a group of my friends saw a need in the community and started a non profit to address it. After reading a news story about a boy sleeping in a burned out house, with only a coat for warmth, these caring ladies founded Sweet Dreamzzz Detroit. Its mission is to make sure children in the inner city are educated about the importance of a good nights sleep and give them tools to sleep comfortably. Working with the school systems, volunteer Sleeper Teachers provide information on healthy sleep habits and the children are given a sleep kit; a sleeping bag, nightshirt , toothbrush/toothpaste, a stuffed animal and a book. Please visit the Sweet Dreamzzz website to see more about my friends and this awesome non profit :-)
  • My new blog design is up and running ( it still needs a few tweaks) and I couldn't be happier. I have been working with Jenn at Munchkinland Design and she was so easy to work with and made the process fun. As we worked towards a final draft, she was always happy to make changes and answer questions. Of course, my favorite part of the design is the birdhouse. I hope you all like it, as much as I do - I would love to hear what you think!
  • I was hoping to celebrate a Tigers win last night and a World Series berth, but the rain and wind blew in at game time. The game was postponed until today. #detroitpride
Happy Thursday!
